ICOM UK, with support from the British Council, is offering travel grants to support staff from UK organisations seeking to build reciprocally beneficial international projects and partnerships.
The 2019-20 ICOM UK – British Council Travel Grant Scheme will enable recipients to undertake an international visit to museums to meet with international colleagues and mutually share skills, experience and expertise. The Travel Grant Scheme supports museums and similar organisations who are starting to develop mutually beneficial international projects and partnerships. Priority will be given to non-national museums and organisations who have not yet participated in an international project or partnership.
The grant will cover the cost of travel (including international and local transport), visas, accommodation and subsistence. The scheme does not fund travel for international conferences and events.
Applications will be considered for grants of up to £1,500 per organisation or consortium for visits beyond Europe and up to £700 for visits within greater Europe. The total amount of funding available for 2019-20 is £28,500. 50% of the funding is ring-fenced for travel to ODA countries. Further information on eligibility, application guidelines and the application form are available on the ICOM UK website.
